Welcome !!!! As some of you may know I make welcome/smile baskets for local families who have a child born or adopted with Down Syndrome, also babies returning for surgery who may need a extra smile. Skyler was born June 14th 2014. We had no idea he had Down Syndrome untill he was born. Those emotions are pretty scary and uncertain when you know nothing about Down Syndrome or the complications that can come along with the diagnosis.
We want to put a smile on other families face and let them know its ok and there is support and a great community of people going through this same journey. Our goal is to spread smiles, awareness, and most of all Congratulations !! We would have loved something like this, We would have loved the words congratulations more than "I'm sorry" Down Syndrome is nothing to be sorry about. I want every mom to be congratulated and every baby to recieve a basket. Ever since the day Skyler was born he has been such an inspiration and has changed our life so much in these short months.
These baskets will be filled with complete love and tons of smiles for each family we are able to serve. We have had people ask how they can help that live far away, so this is the reason for this account. Our hope is that with suppprt we can keep this going and add even more hospitals and families.
The baskets will be filled with blankets, onesies, bibs, clothes, toys, socks, lotion, shampoo, books, journals and some special things for mom as well as baby.
The donations not only help us keep up with supplies but they help us with shipping cost to families that live in other states, countries. Yes we will ship a basket if you know a sweet little one with Down Syndrome you would like to nominate for a Smile Basket.
Thank you for helping us keep this going and spreading smiles one basket at a time !! No amount is too small and every amount is greatly appriciated, you may also mail items if you are crafty and make handmade items ! www.facebook.com/tanyanix
Skyler and Momma
